Mike and Terry Williams compare heaters to cars, pointing out that the average Toledo heater runs for more than 1,800 hours each year—if a car was driven for that long, it could log more than 100,000 miles. Drivers keep their cars running smoothly through regular oil changes and general maintenance, yet many homeowners fail to invest in similar care for their home heating equipment. These are habits Mike and Terry hope to change, as they have learned that preventative measures such as annual tune-ups are the easiest way to keep costly heating and cooling systems operating smoothly.
The company's team of licensed, bonded, and insured technicians maintain old equipment and outfit homes with new heaters from brands such as Trane and Carrier. Beyond heating and cooling, they also work with water heaters and electrical equipment, installing whatever make or model of equipment that will prove most energy efficient for a particular home, commercial space, or upscale doghouse.
When Mauder's licensed and insured technicians arrive, it could be beneath a bright sun or a luminous moon. That's because they're available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for calls to homes and small businesses. They draw on more than 20 years of experiencetwo of which were spent with the wild air conditioners of Badlands National Parkas they examine HVAC systems, draft free estimates, install high-efficiency Carrier furnaces, and back their work with a satisfaction guarantee. When they aren't making repairs or helping with renovation or construction projects, they rig homes with geothermal systems to reduce energy costs and preserve natural resources.
The ingredient list to make wines at DeAngelis Cantina del Vino Winery reads something like this: Grapes. That's it. The facility's refusal to use other additives–such as sulfites, preservatives, and glitter–means its bottles are filled with only all-natural flavors. Vintners who create all-natural wines believe good wine comes simply from healthy grapes aged in a vat. DeAngelis operates under that notion, all while producing the freshest, perhaps fruitier-than-usual varietals of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel, and more.

After greasing the Slip 'n Slide with vegetable oil and shedding winter's fluffy bathrobe and insulated socks, the best way to celebrate summer's arrival is with a handful of velvety-soft frozen custard. The Ritter's menu features a wide variety of rotating flavors, including everything from the vanilla and chocolate classics to the fruit-based favorites such as blueberry and strawberry Italian ice to creations such as Boston crème pie and peanut butter. Order a cone of the flavor du jour ($2.29 and up), or opt for a signature Glacier ($3.19 and up), which is Ritter's frozen custard mixed with your topping(s) of choice and served upside down to confuse your already delicate perception of reality and emphasize the delicacy's extreme thickness. If a list of 25+ toppings dizzies your decision-making noodle, submit your fate to the friendly ice-cream slingers and opt for a signature sundae with pre-designed toppings ($3.99) such as the turtle sundae, a frozen-custard mountain capped with hot fudge, hot caramel, and whipped cream and crowned with butter-toasted pecans and a cherry. Celebrate your newfound superpowers and exploit your nemeses' weaknesses for bananas and chocolate with a banana split ($4.79).
